This is going to be a informationally jam packed half hour where we will discuss how to start planning successes rather than overting challenges.

How do we reach our audiences? How do we become  visible to our markets? How do we determine what market we should be projecting to? How much of our profit do we reinvest? How much does social media help? Should I pay some one to help? 

    There are so many questions when we start planning our success. Join us and learn how we are working daily to ensure the health of our businesses and our futures and learn some of our missteps too! This discussion is not just for those of you who are business owners, there is a lot of practical advise for everyday living in this segment as well.

    The Business Hippies Discussion on Burning Bridges! Sometimes you gotta.

    in Culture

    Join professional musician Earl and professional painter Hannah Tiffin in a discussion on Burning Bridges. Sometimes you have to and sometimes we are being hasty. Like Kenny Rodgers sang "You gotta know when to hold em, you gotta know when to fold em, know when to walk away, know when to run" 

    If you have a small business or a business of passion (BOP) you are going to find times where you will be questioning if it is time to burn a bridge or two. It happens to us all. Most of us are told from a young age that we should "never burn a bridge" or "you never know when you will need that person" well we disagree. Sometimes relationships are not what we thought they were going to be, they can be not good for us and our businessess can suffer from our inability to part ways with those who are not aligned with us, 

    This being said, there are ways to go about ending business relationships, there are ways of standing up for yourself and you are allowed to say no,. The key is to have perimiters in place to keep you from making irrational choices!

    Tune in for a frank discussion on burning bridges setting perimiters and moving forward!

    Enlightenment Comes From Smoking Weed But What Makes You A Hippie?

    in Self Help

    Being a hippie is not a matter of dress, behavior, economic status, or social milieu. It is a philosophical approach to life that emphasizes freedom, peace, love and a respect for others and the earth. The way of the hippie never died. There have always been hippies from the first time society laid down rules, to Jesus, to Henry David Thoreau, to John Lennon, to you. There’s a little hippy in all of us. It’s just been repressed by our socialization process. We need to find it and cultivate our hippie within. Only then can we reach our true potential. Elightenment comes from smoking weed of course, but what makes you a Hippie?

    Business Hippies discuss having a business of passion. Success and Failure.

    in Culture

    Join professional musican Earl and professional artist Hannah in a frank discussion on having businesses of passion, navigating our successes and our failures.

    What is a business of passion? A buisness of passion typically refers to a business that is creative based. This thought could include artists of all kinds. Painters, Musicians, Photographers, Writers, Professional Bloggers, Beauticians, Coaches,Chefs, Healers and so on. But it also includes everyone who is an entrepreneur in our opinion. Passion is a vital ingrediant to being successful in any business. So is a plan of success. 

    We call ourselves "business hippies" which actually started as a joke in our home. Truth be told the term "hippie" was not one that either of us really thought of as defining or even desirable. But! Once we learned the value of aligning our internal core values with our work choices we ended up in a space where we were almost forced to rebuild our businesses to reflect what was important to us, which were very simple living, rooted values. Sooo the term "business hippie" became a title that we now love to hold! 

    Tune in and share with us your thoughts on having businesses of passion, discuss how you are planning your success to include corevalues such as love, joy, family time and so on. Hear some stories about our journey to alignment with our core values which brought us a ton of success and challanges and share with us how your journey is coming along. 

    First person to call in or chat in will win a prize this week!
